ATEME, a provider of end-to-end H.264 IP video surveillance solutions, has announced the release of its new VSIP4 H.264 video security solution.
Featuring a 4-channel IP video/audio encoder and DNA technology, this new solution offers H.264 video quality for security situations including highways, airports, public transportation systems, and urban surveillance, according to the company.
Company officials pointed out that thanks to DSP based programmable and upgradeable architecture, VSIP4 benefits from ATEME’s H.264 compression technology to optimize video quality.
VSIP4 is the first product from ATEME to incorporate the full range of Dynamic Network Adaption (DNA) tools. Designed to adapt to existing network infrastructures, VSIP4 IP Encoder features a high density video matrix — up to 80 channels per rack.
Based on recent innovations by ATEME’s R&D laboratories, the DNA feature set includes a self-adapting H.264 and regulation mode to address safety requirements, maintenance issues and network bandwidth optimization.
Officials explained that DNA not only reduces network bitrates but also enhances the encoder by providing improvements in video quality while benefiting from DNA encoding features such as temporal scalability — support for both live and recording frame rate modes from a single source.
Indicating that the VSIP4 IP Encoder is based on ATEME’s in-house H.264 codec core expertise, as well as years of experience in dealing with video quality, Thierry Tourneux, director of Video Security BU at ATEME, commented, “With VSIP4, we are proud to offer our customers a high performance H.264 encoder with a wide range of features.”
ATEME is a provider of MPEG-4/H.264 video compression solutions. The company’s technology supports both standard and HD content, deployed across any platform — from mobile to Ultra HD.
Last month, the company announced the release of its new VSIP2 EXTREME H.264 encoder supporting an extended temperature range. In addition, it also announced that its H.264 video solutions are fully interoperable with Adobe Flash technologies, including Adobe Flash Player 9 and Adobe Flash Media Server 3.
